The Telemedicine Centre Aachen

With the Telemedicine Centre Aachen, Uniklinik RWTH Aachen already operates one of the leading facilities. This pioneering role will be further expanded together with RWTH Aachen University (RWTH). Thanks to the joint expertise, Europe's first university-based, interdisciplinary telemedicine centre has the best prerequisites for launching further groundbreaking solutions in this cross-sectional area of medicine and technology. It is the central contact point for those who want to bring new products and services into use in the field of telemedicine. By coupling novel technologies and organisational forms, the existing telemedicine approaches are further developed. Together with companies from the telemedicine sector, the leading minds of the UKA and RWTH devote themselves to the technical realisation, user acceptance and the organisational as well as structural framework conditions. Innovative ideas are made tangible in a Living Lab and tested and applied in the real environment. In this way, new fields of application are opened up for innovative telemedicine concepts, which are brought into permanent use and into the field.
